Gloria Lopez-Henriquez, MSW, LCSW is a psychotherapist licensed in New Jersey and New York with over 20 years of experience working with families and couples. She taught at Montclair State University, in the Department of Family and Child Studies and was the director of several school-based programs for children and families in NYC. She is a faculty member of the Center for Family, Community, and Social Justice, Inc. and maintains also a private practice in Morristown, NJ.
Gloria emigrated from Colombia in her early twenties, an experience that has guided her curiosity to co-create with the families and individuals she works with new ways to keep loving and significant connections despite differences. She has done extensive clinical work with families challenged by life transitions mainly from childhood to adolescence and from adolescence to adulthood.
Currently, Gloria is involved in a research project at the Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology Department of the Goryeb Children’s Hospital, Morristown, NJ, exploring the reciprocal impact of childhood chronic illness in families. She has presented nationally and internationally on these topics.
Ms. Lopez-Henriquez is a member of the National Association of Social Workers and of the American Family Therapy Academy.
